Birthday of Guru Nanak
Sat Nam; I have read someplace that "scholars say" that Guru Nanak was born on the 15th of April. I am told that Sikhs do not celebrate it on that day. Can anyone fill in more details on both parts of this?

I became more curious when I heard about the "scholars" version because the day I first found myself going to the Sikh Ashram here - almost feeling compelled to go - without really feeling comfortable about going - was on April 15 last year.

Not that this would mean anything really even if it was Guru Nanaks Birthday but I have been kind of amazed at how many of these sorts of "odd synchronicities" have come along since I became involved in this path. Some of them mean a lot more to me than this one would, but I am curious about it. A biography by Gopal Singh that I have read does not give anything but the year of his birth, which suggests that there might be some uncertainty about it.
Thank you! Wahe Guru! Nam Hari Kaur, Eugene Oregon
